I don't know about you, but I've been stocking up on wheat in Minecraft, and it's not because of my love of cake. Ever since I heard that animal breeding was coming to my favorite block sim, I have been preparing the way for setting up little sheepy romances and sending cows out on double dates. Well, then I saw this image this morning, and inarticulate sounds of joy escaped me. Yes, my dear friends, baby animals are coming to Minecraft. No they won't drop xp (why would you kill a defenseless little lammy?), and they will eventually grow up.
I can't tell you more than that, as much as I would like to. I assume this has something to do with the animal husbandry system coming to the game, but for now all I can do is stare at that beautiful picture and imagine all the snuggling of piglets that I can look forward to. Elmira will have nothin' on me.
